1 QUESTION FOR SHORT ANSWER Q.1 The electric strength of air is about 30, 000 V/cm. By this we mean that when the electric field intensity exceeds this value, a spark will jump through the air. We say that electric breakdown has occurred. Using this value, estimate the potential difference between two objects where a spark jumps. A typical situation might be the spark that jumps between your body and a metal door handle after you have walked on a deep carpet or slid across a plastic car seat in very dry weather. Q. If you grasp the two wires leading from the two plates of a charged capacitor, you may feel a shock. The effect is much greater for a F capacitor than for a 0.0F capacitor, even though both are are charged to the same potential difference. Why? Q.3 Three infinite nonconducting sheets, with uniform surface charge densities, and 3 are arranged to be parallel like the two sheets in Fig. What is their order, from left to right, if the electric field E produced by the arrangement has magnitude E = 0 in one region and E = / 0 in another region? Q.4 As shown in the figure plots of charge versus potential difference for three parallel plate capacitors, which have the plate areas and separations given in the table. Which of the plots goes with which of the capacitors? Capacitor Area Separation 1 A d A d 3 A d Q.5 Initially, a single capacitance C 1 is wired to a battery. Then capacitance C is added in parallel. Are (a) the potential difference across C 1 and (b) the charge q 1 on C 1 now more than, less than, or the same as previously? (c) Is the equivalent capacitance C 1 of C 1 and C more than, less than, or equal to C 1? (d) Is the total charge stored on C 1 and C together more than, less than, or equal to the charge stored previously on C 1? Q.6 As shown in the figure three circuits, each consisting of a switch and two capacitors, initially charged as indicated. After the switches have been closed, in which circuit (if any) will the charge on the left hand capacitor (a) increase, (b) decrease and (c) remain the same? Q.7 Cap-monster maze. In the Figure all the capacitors have a capacitance of 6.0 F, and all the batteries have an emf of 10V. What is the charge on capacitor C? (If you can find the proper loop through this maze, you can answer the question with a few seconds of mental calculation.) Q.8 An oil filled capacitor has been designed to have a capacitance C and to operate safely at or below a certain maximum potential difference V m without arcing over. However, the designer did not do a good job and the capacitor occasionally arcs over. What can be done to redesign the capacitor, keeping C and V m unchanged and using the same dielectric? Q.9 One of the plates of a capacitor connected to battery is earthed. Will the potential diffrence between the plates change if the earthing wire is removed? HAMIRPUR (H.P) CONTACT NUMBER
